Clean hotel in a great location!
Posted Sep 26, 2016
If you are looking for absolute luxury then the Strathcona is not the place however if you're looking for a hotel with a great location and clean rooms then this is it.
The rooms as others have mentioned are small but there is lots of room to be able to unpack your suitcase and all we really used it for was to sleep. They were nice and clean so it didn't really matter that they were small. We stayed 3 nights and one night we heard some people out in the hallway late at night but other than that it was very quiet.
The location of this hotel is what makes it fantastic! We took the train from Pearson International to Union station and we could see the hotel before we were even out of the building. It is basically a two minute walk from Union Station. We also went to a couple ball games at Rogers Centre, the CN tower, and Ripley's aquarium and they are all about a 10 minute walk so you never have to worry about transit at all.
The other great thing was the little pub in the basement of the hotel. They had a big screen to watch sports and it never seemed to be overly packed in there, even after blue jay games.
If you're looking for a great little hotel in the heart of downtown Toronto that doesn't break the bank then this is the place!
